Futures Design, Language and Systems – Towards languaging pluriversal futures

Words and language are inextricably linked with a designer’s ability to shape futures, both productively and analytically. In this workshop, the participants will be introduced to a suite of tools curated for an exploration into the role of language within futures design projects. This workshop aims to build an understanding towards ‘languaging’ of futures and open a systems-level enquiry into challenges of imagining alternative and pluriversal futures within design.

Fuel4Design is a three year Erasmus + Project and this workshop will build on the work done within its first work package called ‘A Lexicon of Design Futures Literacies’.
